Modern Life is Rubbish

Jonathan Chapman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In today’s unsustainable world of goods, where products are desired, Jonathan Chapman was invited to write a feature article in Blueprint (April, 2006) discussing his own particular take on sustainable design. The article asks why people throw things away that still work? Jonathan then describes new and provocative creative strategies for what he calls 'emotionally durable design'. The article received very positive feedback and comments from Blueprint readers worldwide.
